Process of Realtime is the 1st video in the Process as Design, Design as Process series of audio-visual works exploring the use of computation to create semi-autonomous art.
The videos are produced by defining a set of rules that determine how an image and its tonal equivalant is processed over time within a series of feedback buffers. After the initial parameters are set, the process of production is unsupervised, and, as such it is 'self-organising' and 'time-based'. Work literally 'grows' autonomously, according to the program's rules and feedback buffers. The outcome of this process of 'complexity' is thus unpredictable, and integral to the 'nature' of the system.
